Your fault attack scenario correspond to this paper : A Differential Attack Technique Against SPN Structures with Application to AES and KHAZAD (Piret & Quisquater - CHES 2003) This paper describe how to retrieve four bytes of the last round key with at least two pairs of ciphertext/faultytext. Each pair of ciphertext $C$ and faultytext $C^*$ could be ...

From your picture I deduce that $A$ and $B$ are both 8 bits. So this construction can be seen as a $16 \times 8$ bit S-box (not bijective). The fact that it's not square is probably what is causing confusion. Usually, for SPNs, invertible S-boxes are used. Non-invertible S-boxes are less common, but they certainly have applications. One of the things we can ...

"Not vulnerable" is not how I would describe it, but my understanding is that the existing attacks on DES cannot directly not work with 3DES. At the moment, the best attack against single DES is a linear attack which requires $2^{43}$ plaintext-ciphertext pairs, and has a time complexity of at between $2^{39}$ and $2^{43}$ operations. Linear cryptanalysis ...

With DES, the issue is the size of the s-box. The DES s-boxes are highly tuned for their security properties, but if you compare their nonlinearity to the larger AES s-box, the are quite inferior. Note than random s-boxes and key dependent s-boxes are not the same thing. Random = fixed random, key dependent = permuted s-boxes based on the key. A random set ...

Those tables are fairly easy to build conceptually but require quite some work to actually carry out. Note that: The columns show the XOR for the in-going pairs and the rows show the number of pairs that had the specified XOR afterwards. This pseudo-code generates the table: InLength; // input length of the S-Box in bits OutLengh; // output length of the ...

The key does not effect the cipher' differentials threw the equation (x+k)+(x'+k)=x+x' (the + sign means xor) How you can yes the key is X1+k=x2 And threw the xor k=X1 +x2 X1 is the value beffor the xor with the key value k. X2 is the output of X1+k To make this attack work beffor you must find a differential for the two input pairs threw a chosen ...
